why ask why  
I someday would like an explanation for why I get OBSESSED with writing freakishly long epics that only, like, three people will read. whyyyyyy? I mean, seriously, self, is it too much to ask to write epics in fandoms that have more than ten people in them? (k, I exaggerate but I don't think a FL/LO:UK crossover has, shall we say, a very large readership pool...)

Or use all this awesome creative energy on the three million things I should be writing? SRSLY.

I guess it's proof that the subconscious/muse goes where it wills, though I should probably chain mine up in the basement and make it behave...

I'm reading your BSG/B5 crossover and I don't even watch BSG! :-)

See? I SHOULD BE WRITING ON THAT. *sigh*

(but yay, I'm glad you're reading it. I tend to let it slide for awhile then post a few chapters then put it aside for awhile... so it's good to be reminded it's still out there in WIP land)

I'd like to know this too. I have to wrangle so many obscure plotbunnies...

Muses go where they decide to go. And since it is fanfiction, and therefore written for the sheer joy of it instead of the desire to sell it. Then write what you enjoy writing. :)

oh I know, but I wish my fics were way less EPIC sometimes.

I feel your pain - I do exactly the same. This spring my muse demanded I write a HORRIBLY LONG fic about Jolinar's life as an undercover operative, and I doubt 10 people have even looked at it. (bad muse...) I really wish my brain thought up plot-bunnies that was slightly less obscure...

Yep, the muse does as the muse does. But yeah, it wouldn't be such a "problem" (I mean, not really a problem) if the stories weren't so freaking epic!

Because you hope that someone out there will read it and appreciate your hard work... this is coming from a Harry Potter ficwriter who just rights old people smut. Moody, McGonagall, Snape, etc....not a golden trio in sight. :)

haha! excellent to know I'm not alone.

Iand if it's any consolation, if I ever writer Teen Wolf fic it'll also be the old people! )
